I guess he is right.
Dre: What if he never goes back Bow? I don't know where I would have been without college. When I was a kid walking through my neighborhood, the only jobs I thought you could have were a postman, a barber or a bus driver. All of them are good, but college taught me the world was bigger than my block.
Pops: He knows that dummy! Look the boy grew up different from how you did. Just like you grew up different from how I did, and now he is traveling down a road you ain't never been on before. You ought to be glad Junior has the opportunity to do it his way.
Bow: My brother and sister did it their way, and they are still spinning. I don't want that for Junior. You guys he is a scared kid, and I am just trying to protect him from making a bad decision.
Pops: Here's what I know. Your scared kid was brave enough to sit with you and be honest about feeling a little bit lost. And Dre, he stood up to you just now when you tried to bully him. I think that the strong, honest young man you both raised has earned a little bit of trust.
Bow: Are you saying you agree with the gap year?
Pops: Hell, no, that is still some white shit, but you owe it to him to see this through.
Dre: I guess he is right.
